Hope Is Not On The Way


I wrote this back in 2004 Kerry? Bush?
Looks like it’s still true.  😦

ONE RAINY NIGHT
(Written on election night 2004)

One rainy night
the people flocked,
lined up all around the block,
to vote, we thought,
for a new way,
a change,
a ray of light.

One rainy night,
the people were polled,
even though the night was cold.
It seemed the dream
was near at last.
Our hearts
dared to hope.

One rainy night
the map turned red,
an open wound being bled.
The stain spread
through the night.
Only edges
held to blue.

One rainy night
the dam gave way
to morning, gray on gray,
Out of sight,
the victory lost.
Hope was not
on the way.

One rainy night
should lead to day.
Sunshine will return they say.
Someday . . .

See my latest review at Self Publishing Review – SPR –

“The plot is well-developed with some genuine surprises, and Gina Martin is a stellar protagonist: smart, confident, and independent.”

Austin Texas Tower Shooting – 1966 and Now.


Poem in memory of the shooting

Austin City Limits

Nightlights along the river

Heat rises from the pavement

Strumming guitars

Beats over microphones

Tower in the background

Try not to remember

Bullets raining down

The summer of ‘66

Just missed me

Didn’t miss another

Mother to be

Steel penetrated belly

Taking that life yet unborn

Try to forget

Austin City Limits.
